I would like to try a newer SDK, but this hardware I'm using only has support to WICED 2.4.1. Also, I tried using admin rights, but to no avail.
Can you try with Cygwin?
I can, but then I think I won't be able to use WICED IDE.
This may work. Try with the latest IDE and import the WICED-SDK-2.4.1 into it.
The new IDE can be found :-
Check out the IDE.
How to Import the 2.4.1 SDK?
Leave the Project Name empty and browse to the folder in which the 2.4.1 SDK is located.
You should be able to see the project and hopefully compile it using the IDE.
Maybe this works, I'm downloading the latest IDE you pointed out. But if I'm about to import the old SDK, I suppose the IDE will call the same "make.exe", which is causing the problem. Let's see..
I tried the new IDE, but I couldn't even open it, an error about Java appeared.
Well, I have to leave, now. Tomorrow I'll keep trying, thanks for all!

As I suspected, I found out later that a service was preventing "make.exe" from being executed. I was able to find it out by rebooting Windows in safe mode. That way, this service was not initialized, so the "make.exe" program would be free to execute with no error message.
This service is one called G-Buster Browser Defense, that comes along with a security module, required to use internet banking in some banks from Brazil, like Banco do Brasil, Itaú and Santander. After removing it, I restarted Windows normally, and WICED started working once again. I already had this module installed some months before, when WICED used to work, but I suppose an update was made during those months I didn't use it.
Awesome. Thanks for sharing the cause of the problem.
